Two new clips from The Exorcism of Emily Rose
  • In an extremely rare decision, the Catholic Church officially recognized the demonic possession of a 19 year-old college freshman. Told in terrifying flashbacks, "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" chronicles the haunting trial of the priest accused of negligence resulting in the death of the young girl believed to be possessed. Inspired by true events, the film stars Laura Linney as the lawyer who takes on the task of defending the priest (Tom Wilkinson) who performed the controversial exorcism.

Five clips from Underclassman
  • Nick Cannon plays Tracy "Tre" Stokes, a streetwise LA cop in 'Underclassman' which combines frenetic action with sharp-eared comedy. When a student at an elite private school gets murdered, the rough-edged rookie, Stokes gets assigned as the undercover detective to track down the killer. The resulting culture shock is only one of his difficulties. The ever-resourceful Stokes resorts to using his unique blend of sharkish good cheer and rakish charm to woo his beautiful teacher Karen Lopez (Roselyn Sanchez) to help him pass Spanish and his arrogant athletic prowess to make the school streetball team. Once Stokes gets "in" with the edgy team captain and lead suspect Rob Donovan (Shawn Ashmore) he discovers that Donovan is being coerced into participating in a student car theft operation. Using his talent for hunches, Stokes wastes no time employing unorthodox methods of investigation. Although disapproving of Stokes behavior, Captain Victor Delgado (Cheech Marin) is worried for his safety and assigns two of his detectives as back up - Detective Lisa Brooks (Kelly Hu) and Richard Gallecki (Ian Gomez) to keep an eye on him. With their help,Stokes is able to track down the killer, Headmaster Powers (Hugh Bonneville) who turns out to be trading the stolen cars as payment for drugs.

New York City, the 70s, The 4:30 Movie.
  • Great nostalgia. Channel 7 was a network affiliate which ran feature-length movies in a 90 minute block - that means they were all cut to 69 minutes of running time to allow for commercials. Their most notorious achievement involved paring down the 108 minute musical Brigadoon to a comprehensible 69 minute narrative - by cutting out those pesky songs which did nothing to forward the plot! The film version of Brigadoon had already cut out the two risque Meg Brockie songs which had been in the stage version, so the 4:30 movie managed to run Brigadoon virtually music-free!

University of Texas library will eliminate books, replacing them with "colorful overstuffed chairs" and barstools. The word library comes fom the Latin "liber", meaning ... um ... "book." I don't know the Latin word for "barstool."

John Cusack may break his streak of suckiness with this film. It sounds like it has some potential. (And it's rated R for violence, language and sexuality/nudity.) Here's the trailer for The Ice Harvest.
